A little tougher day today as the cold front, blue bird sky’s and heavy winds blew across Tim’s The winds kept me off of the areas that I fished yesterday  so I looked for more protected area where I thought the top water bite would be. I caught and released a mix of 15 Largemoth and Smallmouth all caught on the Rapala Skitter Walk or a Real Bait Crawfish Jig (see at murfreesboro outdoors) with a Trigger X Green Pumpkin Twin Tail Grub. I like to use Sufix 832 braid for my top water baits, and  I really like to throw the Skitter Walk on a 7′ All Pro APX m/h Spinning. You can get a very long cast but still have enough backbone to get a good hook set, plus the 832 has little to no stretch which helps as well. .  More next week Lord willing. Rick McFerrin

What a top water bite this morning. I started throwing a Rapala Skitter Walk at day light and never laid it down until I left the lake at 12:30 pm I must have caught well over 30 or 40 mix of Smallmouth and Largemouth. I lost 2 giants in the mix as well. As always I use only Sufix mono and braid and All Pro Rods  I’m getting use to this new site so if things don’t look exactly like it should, it;s the learning curve for me. Rick McFerrin

I spent 2 days last week on Lake Lanier and one day on Lake Hartwell with long time friend Tim White.  The pictures above are a few of the 80 or more that Tim White and I caught using a Rapala Skitter Walk  and Rapala Dt6’s in a couple of colors in those 3 days. Tim and I both use Sufix mono and braid as well. The Spots ran bigger on Lanier than Lake Hartwell but was a lot of fun none the less. . Great 3 days with a good friend. Rick McFerrin
